look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance is dark gold with a white head leaving nice lace.

Smell is a little caramel and citrus, didn't open up much.

Taste is earthy and stemmy hops, big bitterness. Some pine. A little nectarine peaks through the alpha acids, the sweetness a bit more prominent after my palate adjusts to the IBUs. Got some nice fresh hop resins as it warmed.

Mouthfeel is very oily, dry, medium bodied.

Drinkability is pretty good, a fiercely bitter IPA. I prefer more hop flavors though.

Review from notes

Appearance: Nice golden color, good white head

Smell: Very citrusy and sweet, grapefruit and lemony hops

Taste: Grapefruit, hoppy bitterness, biscuity malt, and some earthiness

Mouthfeel: Medium body, full carbonation

Overall: Good but not outstanding. A good standby at Karl Strauss

look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

Love the sweetness in this beer, peach, pineapple is a strong force in this beer. The smell is sweet. Not very piney, very sweet. Better than expected.

Appearance: a light, clear amber-gold colour with a thin, frothy head. Minimal retention and lacing.

Aroma: definite citrus and pine on the nose.

Just good a good IPA
